Reviews

6.5 Macclesfield Day Nursery has a Review Score of 6.5 (6.540)

The Review Score of 6.5 (maximum of 10) for Macclesfield Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Macclesfield Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.9 out of 5 from 3 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no positive reviews in the last 12 months)

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.646 for Macclesfield Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (63 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.646

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 1.894 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Macclesfield Day Nursery is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5 then divided by 2 = 1.750

    2. Target of 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target = 0.288 , then divided by 2 = 0.144

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

We are so happy we chose this nursery and cannot recommend it highly enough. It is very professionally run by the two nurseries managers, they are very accommodating and approachable. The staff are all so friendly and caring and I feel happy leaving my son in their care, he always has a great time and I know that he is in safe hands. The range of activities that they do is great and the outside space was a huge selling point for us, especially the chickens which my son loves! Communication is great and every day when we pick him up staff are great at telling us what they have been up to that day. My son has made so much progress since he started this nursery and we know he will have more happy years to come!

A wonderful nursery where all my children have made fantastic progress in their social and emotional development. I particularly like the outdoor space which is made use of on a regular basis. Some teaching in numbers and phonics really helped as a precursor to school for the older children. Most importantly my son really enjoys nursery and has made many friends.

The nursery balances professionalism with a relaxed, down to earth and welcoming approach to childcare. My baby has thoroughly enjoyed her time there and has obviously developed considerably since she started in October 2015. The carers are always very attentive to her needs and ensure that she not only is well looked after but is busy all day with fun activities. There have been a couple of incidences of my baby being poorly at nursery and on each occasion they've reacted appropriately and swiftly. I am completely comfortable leaving my baby with them all day knowing that she will be safe and happy. I can't recommend them enough!

My little girl has been going to Macc Day Nursery since she was 5 months old and she loves it! The staff are brilliant, very accommodating and you always get a full rundown of your baby's day, often including a painting to take home. The back garden is great and they run other activities from outside companies during the week. I'm never worried about leaving my little one there and she always has a great time. Couldn't recommend enough.

My son has been attending this nursery since 7months old and he absolutely loves it! He loves all the different activities both outside and in. The rooms are smaller in numbers so the children in each room are closer in age. The staff are friendly, enthusiastic and easily approachable. Every time I pick him up the staff are great at telling me about what he has been up to during the day. A secure, friendly and fun nursery.

The staff have always looked after our son well. He enjoys going and regularly and fondly talks about his friends and the staff at nursery. He enjoys a wide variety of activities including playing in the big garden, painting and drawing, and brings home his artwork. We have already recommended to friends and will be sending our younger son when maternity leave ends.
